US demand for wood protection products is forecast to increase 2.2 percent per year through 2013. Higher value formulations will continue to gain market share, primarily due to environmental and performance issues. Interior wood applications will achieve the best gains, promoted by a rebound in both housing starts and remodeling.

It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by product (e.g., stains, paints, sealers, primers, copper azole, alkaline copper quarternary, chromate copper arsenate, creosote), application (e.g., decking, siding, furniture) and market.
